Zen-Fire vs. CQG

I came across these on another board. Apparently Zen-Fire lags CQG up to 25 seconds. I used NT with Zen-Fire a couple of years ago, but I found that the feed could not handle extreme days and NT crashed one time too many for me. Anyway, I have not made the videos and cannot vouch for the validity, but thought I would share them with you...

Having used both feeds, I can comment: CQG data is more robust from my personal experience. That is, during fast markets it never seemed skipped a beat. While Zen-Fire is certainly fast most of the time, it hasn't bred the same confidence in me to consider it worthy of being considered a primary feed. Right now I am using CTS, which so far, seems to be on par with CQG. Zen-Fire is currently my emergency backup.

I found pausing the video every now and then makes it easier to see what is really happening, especially in the first videos in the thread.
